Stothert to bring back retired director to help run City Planning Department
Posted: Monday, September 23, 2013 12:00 am
Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert proposed an unorthodox approach Monday to running the City Planning Department.
She named the acting director, James Thele, to become the planning director. He would form what Stothert described as a leadership team with a retired planning director, Steve Jensen, with whom the city would contract as a paid consultant, if the City Council approves.
